Wes Anderson's not directing the next Spider-Man movie — even if YouTube homage trailers suggest that he should. Mitch Breitweiser came up with an intriguing alternative in the Twitter Report feed, however, and I dare say it's a brilliant solution to another one of Marvel's film franchises.
Elsewhere, you already know that Edgar Wright and Stan Lee have been discussing "Ant-Man." That may shed some more light on Wright's previous meal date with Jon Favreau that I noted in Monday's report. Check out retweets after the jump along with some "Lost" reactions from last night, Pia Guerra on the Olympic torch, and Joe Quesada on the likelihood of Marvel digital releases coinciding with print books.
It's all in the Twitter Report for February 10, 2010.
@smilinstanlee I had lunch with the cool , young director Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) and, as you’d imagine, we had fun discussing the tiny hero
-Stan Lee, Writer ("The Amazing Spider-Man," "The Fantastic Four")
@mbreitweiser A Wes Anderson directed Fantastic Four movie would be the best thing ever. Seriously.
-Mitch Breitweiser, Artist ("Drax the Destroyer," "Captain America: The Chosen")
"Lost" pt. 1: @JoshFialkov Have there always been this many commercials on Lost or is ABC just trying to get it's moneys worth?
-Joshua Hale Fialkov, Writer ("Cyblade," "Elk's Run")
"Lost" pt. 2: @chris_ryall I can buy smoke monsters and time travel on LOST but it's hard to take Mac from It's Always Sunny seriously on there.
-Chris Ryall, Publisher (IDW)
"Lost" pt. 3: @DanSlott Finally saw last night's LOST. Grr! I am getting sick and tired of characters in episodes & trailers promising to tell me "everything"! :(
-Dan Slott, Writer ("The Amazing Spider-Man," "Avengers: The Initiative")
@JoeQuesada Same week digital releases of our books? No plans as of now that I'm aware of. Go to your comic shop, get some exercise!
-Joe Quesada, Writer/Editor-in-Chief/Artist ("NYX," "The Ray")
-Todd McFarlane, Writer/Artist ("Spawn," "The Amazing Spider-Man")
@PiaGuerra So Arnold has campaigned against the BC film industry but still gets to run in the torch relay through Stanley Park? Huh?
-Pia Guerra, Artist ("Y: The Last Man," "Doctor Who: The Forgotten")
Parting Wisdom for the Day:
@bclaymoore Instead of Watchmen 2, I'm gonna write a new book using Watchmen as templates the way Uncle Al used the Charlton heroes. Genius!
